A deliciously engaging course where students get to plant, care for, and harvest food from Usdan’s fruit and vegetable gardens and learn to prepare simple dishes with the produce they grow. In 2017, students cooked up dishes including zucchini brownies, mint chocolate chip ice cream, basil pesto, and more! Students also care for the camp’s pet chickens and collect their eggs. Additional fee of $500 for the 7- week Major; $300 for the 4-week Major; $250 for the 7-week Minor; and $150 for the 4-week Minor.
